If you have participated in any type of business project over the past 10 years, you have likely been introduced to or are leveraging the Agile process. Agile began its life in the software development world during the late 1980s and early 1990s. At the time, software development projects were seeing a tremendously high failure rate. Many attributed those failures to inefficiencies with the traditional “waterfall” method, which consisted of gathering all the requirements up front, disappearing for six months to develop the solution, then reappearing with working software. In the vast majority of cases, after months of research, deliberation, and development time, the final product did not fulfill customer requests, nor did it provide the outcome they needed. In essence, companies were investing large amounts of time and money up-front, only to be disappointed with the end result.
